The recorder from the series SOLO with the model number: 28DB-AS from the workshop Paetzold by Kunath is a recorder, which gives a lasting joy of playing in daily use.
This is due to the carefully considered combination of the special model design in symbiosis with the expressive possibilities of the RESONA.
The material of this instrument convinces pleasantly by its special qualities. The special characteristics can best be described with the following words: Overtone-rich.
The inner bore of the instrument is cylindrical and wider. This type of drilling process gives the instrument its typical sound.
In principle, recorders with a further bore sound warmer, fuller, more fundamental and thus more ensembleable than instruments with a narrower bore.
What music styles can the flute be used for?
RESONA is excellently suited for instruments that are used in ensembles, in choral playing and as solo instruments.
Who is this instrument intended for?
This means that recorders from RESONA are particularly suitable for beginners. Another law to be observed is that a more qualitative instrument makes learning progress in most cases more enriching than a simple one.
The Wind Tunnel of a Recorder
The wind tunnel is the area in the recorder head where the blowing air of the musician is formed into an air blade. This air leaf is the central starting point of the sound of a flute.
In interaction with the labium, the oscillation generating the flute tone is generated from the air leaf. The shape of the wind tunnel is thus
for the sound and the response of the instrument.
The model 28DB-AS
by Paetzold by Kunath has a wind tunnel that is straight and conical.
Conically shaped wind tunnels accelerate the breathing air more than cylindrical ones.
Wind tunnels are complex in their geometric form and many parameters influence each other.
Wise of grip
The model Paetzold by Kunath SOLO 28DB-AS is delivered in the following versions: Baroque fingering.
It is not always possible to drill the tone holes in places in the body that are comfortable to grasp with one's hands. Especially with bass recorders there are some tone holes at positions which are not reachable due to acoustic necessities. With such instruments, the instrument maker installs flaps that make gripping much easier or even possible in the first place.
The instrument 28DB-AS
has the following keys: Paetzold full folding. This allows the recorder to be played above average by players with smaller hands.
This flap mechanism is unique and legally protected. Especially in Korea and Taiwan these models are often used in recorder orchestras by well-known teachers for adolescent players.
But also older players with reduced grip span of the hands appreciate the advantages of Paetzold full folding.
Construction of the body
The construction of a flute fundamentally determines the way in which the woodwind instrument can be used, on the one hand, for easy assembly and, on the other hand, for convenient transport.
This is a point not to be underestimated, especially when transporting larger (and sometimes several) instruments.
Ask veteran ensemble leaders once.
Packaging and accessories
The instrument is supplied as standard with an optional bag / case and matching accessories: Fat jar, fingering chart, care instructions
If the instrument is played by several persons, it makes sense to clean the head piece sterilely at regular intervals to ensure hygienic harmlessness.
Here the care product Flautisept has proven itself. You will find Flautisept in our assortment.
